As a Mechanical Engineer, I've devoted my life to learning about the way things work in this world. No, I did not forget to update this page when I graduated college. My learning didn't stop when I left the classroom. I see every experience as an opportunity to expand my gifts in problem solving.

I've formally studied in 6 countries with classes ranging between Biology, Partial Differential Equations, and Doctrinal Studies. As much as I love to see how these diverse fields of knowledge play vital roles in my life as a mechanical engineer, I had other motivations for pursuing an International Mechanical Engineering degree. Varying cultures offer unique experiences and viewpoints through which I can see the world. Engineering requires interaction with a wide range of people in order to share ideas and my travels have equipped me to more readily understand the people I interact with.

I love to spend as much of my spare time in nature, whether reading a book under a tree, kayaking with my wife, or snowshoeing with friends. My camera is a constant companion on exploring a new part of this creation as I enjoy capturing the beauty around me.
